Face masks (obvi) + sippy cups, fun games, picnic blankets, music, utensils....basically all we need to socialize from a physical distance, right. #addtocart
I see people gathering. I see some of them, in masks, (scroll down deep for all my current favorite masks) trying their best to allow kids and adults alike a little physically distanced-outdoor-safe time with friends and family, for the sake of love and sanity. I see them on patios and porches, in parks and backyards. And I see...
Insulated travel coffee mugs — we judged by look, feel, durability, spill-proofing &...y'know...how well they actually work...to find 1 mug to limit our environmental impact.
This is a post for all the running-out-the-door, tugging-on-sneaks, "Do you have your backpack?"-"Where are the keys?"-"Put on a jacket!" moms. Now that I'm doing the same thing every morning (admittedly sans children), having a cup of heaven to cuddle on the bus ride into the city is a treasure. What is not a treasure, is hitting one of...

Sponsored by Dyson & ShopStyle. Have you ever noticed Shana’s periodic comments about her friend who talks a little too much for social comfort about her love of a certain vacuum? Yep…that’s me. Leading the world in thrilling conversations about comfortable shoes and vacuums. I really am truly obsessed with my Dyson vacuum, so when Dyson reached out to TME...
Mocktails aren't the only cool drinks for kids. Set up a hot chocolate bar (think, coffee station, but more fun) & whip up warm holiday magic. Just 3 steps.
I'm gearing up to host some holiday parties at our house over the course of the next month. I always make sure my cocktail game is on-point for the adults, but as my kids get older, I'm trying to find more ways to include them in the festivities. One request I've been getting from my daughter since the cold...
Doing yoga; eating whole foods; taking care of our mental health; & including supplements — all things us mamas need to do....here's how I did it.
I've been pretty transparent about my health these past couple of years, at least on my personal Instagram and podcast. It has been a wild ride. That's the only way I can describe it, honestly. Thankfully, I have been on the road to recovery, and recently HUM Nutrition has been pushing me along faster to a better place. However,...

10 Cute Lunchbags…For MAMA

I spy with my little eye....10 lunch bags cute enough for Mama. For those of us with #watergoals, who also want a laptop bag, who want to feel happy at lunch.

And I want some joy with that Pinterest-worthy food bowl I intend to make for lunch...someday. #snort Or at the very least, a lunchbox that doesn't immediately make my...
Best Memorial Day sale strategy? Stock up on home goods & appliances. Vitamix, Dyson, Parachute, Instant Pot, Solo Stove. Deals on all our favs? Yes, please.
Funny how, even as a someone who spends most of my work hours in (or very near) the kitchen, I can still barely manage to get a family meal plan together with time to spare. Fortunately, I do have a few things that help meals and snacks come to fruition with a little more ease, so I’m not totally...
Go green with this sustainable switch: ditch the disposable coffee cup for a cute to-go tumbler. Check out the 10 best travel mugs — says us.
Coffee, my friend. That beautiful moment that slows each day down...when I have that gorgeous hot cup of deliciousness. I'm a person who hates routine and a planned schedule, but that morning cup, each morning, is my favorite. And then my second favorite is the couple of times a week I get a beautiful latte when I'm out and...
Our fam lives the DASH Diet (& Mediterranean Diet, too). We've got the shopping list, meal plans & low-sodium snacks on lock; here's how we eat healthfully.
In 2018 we wrote about our Mediterranean Diet, otherwise known around here as "How we eat, Most of the time." The Mediterranean Diet just trumped, in 2019, what had previously held the number one spot for the prior eight years, and bumped it, the DASH Diet, down to the number two spot according to US News and World Report....
